Sounds like the fuel pressure regulator. Should have a vacuum hose going to it.

Car stalls and will not restart


Most likely close to the gas tank and where can be seen when car is jacked up.Manufacturers don't like placing filters far from the fuel pump.And that's in the tank.They don't want to make it too easy on us,so they put the filter there near the tank.You can always call the auto parts store,or ask them where it s located when you go get the new fuel filter.They just look it up in the books.Rigger

Starting problem


Pressure in the tank is normal, let it sit overnight if possible, turn the key on, but don't start the car, listen for the fuel pump to to on and then shut off this is normal, turn the key all the way off, then do it again, listen for the fuel pump to the same thing on then off, after doing that about three times then start the car like you normally do, if it starts ok, then one of you injector is leaking down or the check valve is bad. If you still have a problem look and see if you have any smoke coming out of the tailpipe. If is kinda blue, it could be your valve seals leaking oil down on your spark plugs. Did the old spark have a white looking ash on them?

Check for a vacuum leak, at the intake manifold, and at the throttle body. How old are the plugs and wires? Its the age not the miles. Has the fuel filter been changed?

Gas leak


That would be your fuel filter. How it happened would be unknown to anyone, rock, pothole, curb, rust. But you should get it replaced or do it yourself asap fairly easy job to get done.FYI you go through Audi to get the part you will be paying alot of money. I am all about OEM parts, but the fuel filter for my Ford the is OEM was almost 150 dollars. So just FYI
